Sharing is caring!

Hearts all across the internet are melting as we witness the heartwarming story of a caring ginger cat captured on camera comforting a black-and-white foster kitten who’s been through some tough times.

This touching video, shared by user @moyer3, is making waves on TikTok, with over 1.4 million views and counting. It beautifully portrays the compassionate ginger cat snuggling up to the tiny, sick foster kitten.

In the video, there’s a heart-wrenching text overlay that reads:

“The white kitten is our foster kitten and is really sick and not doing well. We think she might have feline infectious peritonitis, which is exactly what our orange cat was diagnosed with. Which can be very fatal, especially in young kittens… It’s like he knows and is taking care of her even though he just met her.”

Despite the heavy vibe, the video shows us how this ginger cat is all sweet and affectionate, comforting the unwell foster kitten. 

About FIP

Let’s talk about Feline Infectious Peritonitis, or FIP, for a moment. According to veterinary experts, it’s a viral disease caused by specific strains of the feline coronavirus. To put it bluntly, it’s a nightmare, especially for kittens.

FIP comes in two forms, one of which is more common and progresses rapidly. 

The symptoms can vary from one cat to another, but they often include fatigue, weight loss, fever, breathing difficulties, seizures, vomiting, yellowing of the skin and eyes, loss of appetite, or excessive drinking of water.

Cat owners who suspect FIP should waste no time in contacting the vet!

Diagnosis isn’t straightforward, as it may require blood tests, X-rays, and fluid checks. If it turns out to be FIP, your vet is your best source of guidance on what’s best for your furry friend.
